IIt’s an undignified position for any person but the Church, in particular, ought to be above this. Christian teaching has always held that life is sacred and worth defending at any cost. Jesus told of a shepherd who left 99 sheep behind to go rescue the one lost lamb (Matthew 18: 12-14). It was not a practical decision, any more than dying on a cross to save the world is practical. But such is the price of the Church’s most radical teaching: that every single life has value, and no human being is expendable.
